I have a Brother model HL-2040. The printer was working fine. I put some additional paper in it and clicked print and all the lights started flashing. I looked for a paper in the printer wrong and...

Hi there,
Red paper light is on means that there is no paper fed in the machine. Follow the steps below to clear this issue:
- First remove the paper tray from the machine. - Then remove all the paper from the tray. - Fan the paper well or run your fingers through the edges of the paper. - Adjust the paper guides of the tray. - Then reload the paper back to the paper tray. - Put the paper tray back to the machine. - Lastly press the go/blue button.
Printer should print the document.
Hope this helps. Rate if it works. Thanks

Light flashes next to "check printer cartridge"

For an illustrated version of the text below go to:
Check Paper Light Blinking
Figure 1: Check Paper light blinking At the start or in the middle of a print job, the Check Paper light begins to blink. The unit will not print. If the unit is connected to a computer and the HP software has been installed, one of the following messages is displayed:
  • There is a paper jam (or misfeed). Clear the jam and press the Enter, Resume, or Okay button on the hp psc.
  • The unit is out of paper. Load more paper and press the Enter, Resume, or OK button on the hp psc.
If both the Check Paper and the Check Print Cartridge lights are blinking simultaneously, or if the computer message is The print cartridge carriage is stalled , click here for troubleshooting information . Step 1: If the unit is out of paper, load more paper
  1. Move the paper guide out, load the paper, then adjust the paper guide. Make sure the paper is flat in the tray. Figure 2: Load paper
  2. Press the On/Resume button. Figure 3: On/Resume button
If the unit is loaded with paper and the light is still blinking, go on to the next step. Step 2: Remove jammed paper from the rear of the unit
  1. Unplug the product.
  2. Press the tab on the left side of the rear access door and remove it. Figure 4: Unlatching the rear access door by pressing the tab on the left
  3. Remove all the jammed paper and foreign material. Pull the paper slowly and gently to avoid tearing it or damaging the print mechanism. Avoid touching the internal components.
  4. Replace the rear access door. Put the pins on the right end of the door into the holes on the right side of the rear access area. Then snap the door shut. Figure 5: Door pins in product holes
Step 3: Check the front of the unit for jammed paper
  1. Open the cartridge access door in the front of the unit. Figure 6: Open the cartridge access door
  2. Pull out any jammed paper or other foreign material you were not able to remove from the rear. Pull the paper slowly and carefully to avoid tearing it or damaging the print mechanism.
  3. Close the cartridge access door and plug the product back in.
How to avoid paper jams
  • Only insert paper into the paper tray until it meets resistance - do not push it farther in.
  • Make sure the paper is flat in the paper tray and the guide is adjusted to the width of the paper.
  • Do not add paper while the unit is printing.
  • Remove printed pages frequently.
  • Do not use paper that is too thin, too slick, or that stretches.
  • Do not use torn or creased paper. Paper that has been printed previously may cause jams.
  • Make sure the rear access door is securely fastened.
  • If you follow all these guidelines and still have frequent paper jams, you may need to clean the paper rollers.
Cleaning paper rollers
  1. Turn off the unit, then unplug the power cord.
  2. Remove the rear access door. See the picture above.
  3. Wipe the paper rollers with a lint-free cloth lightly moistened with distilled or bottled water. Rotate the rollers with your fingers to clean all the way around. Figure 7: Paper rollers
  4. Allow the rollers to dry completely, then replace the rear access door. Put the pins on the right end of the door into the holes on the right side of the rear access area, then snap the door shut.
  5. Plug the unit back in and turn it on.

Paper will not feed Gestetner 5325

check the paper tray end stop ie the green tab that keeps the paper in the tray as these can come out or be moved.. when you load paper make sure the green tab is tight against the paper.. also the feed rollers might need replacing.. if you take the tray out and then look inside the opening to the right hand of the opening you will see some grey rollers or it may be one large roller this can be removed and cleaned.. the small type have a litle white clip holding in place.. if you have the large roller there is a plastic black lever towards the fron on the top right that has to be moved out to the front then you can remove the roller and clean..Good luck let me know if you need more info

Hi i have problems with my 7502 gestetner nrg photocopier

This sounds like a paper size issue. Check your papersize and oriontation in the tray(green selector font right or back left of tray) and check paper settings under the user tools menu for tray 1. let me know if that works, so we can trouble shoot.

If you look at the paper exit you will see 4 white exit wheels
in the middle of the 2 center ones you will see that there is a black
lever. This needs to be pushed back into position so that it is horizontal to the exit wheels.

Cannot print from Tray 1 in Gestetner 6002

First make sure that the machine is reading/ seeing the paper size of the paper that is in the tray ( select tray 1 from the touch screen and see what the paper size reads). If the machine sees a different size then that in the tray, use the 'user tools' and change the paper for that tray. Also, go into your printer settings on/in your computer and make sure that the proper paper size is selected ( the size that is in the tray you want to print from). If the orientation of the paper size is different from the tray -- will not print and give you the error.
